 Dear Friends,

July was such a wonderful month at CSL Carlsbad!  We experienced abundance overflowing... Good times, fellowship, wonderful volunteer participation, PLUS our Power of Eight Class with Rev. Lori, not only raised enough money to pay for a Gratitude Well in India, but with the donations we received from others not in the class, we are well on our way to funding a second well also!  Congratulations CSL Carlsbad for putting Good in Action!  And special thanks to Rev. Lori for the wonderful leadership on the project and the class...

Here's the photo from last's from the video that Practitioner Larry made.  

In July, we worked on Making Decisions and Setting Intentions.   Rev. Maurene has written a good explanation of what's coming next as we continue our exploration of how to use spiritual principles in our daily lives......

     "This month we will be discussing another book by Dr. Raymond Charles Barker, "Treat Yourself to Life" (Understanding the Power of Spiritual Mind Treatment).
     Dr. Barker says that to live life with some degree of success, inner changes are necessary.  Your lif
e is all that you really have.  It is normal to want health, peace of mind, love, security and creative self-expression.  But you'll never secure them from the outside.  Shure, there are people wo are pushing, demanding, and pressurizing but there is another way based on spiritual principle. The only security you have is the handling of your own thought.  Your mind alone determines your experience while you are here on earth.  Spiritual Mind treatment (positive prayer) is a science not a miracle.  Treat yourself to greater life.  Assume you can do it, and it doesn't require piety.  Just try.  Say, "I know what I want in my world.  I am now going to believe that I have it."  Fear is the greatest obstacle to your mental growth.  Replace it with faith through consistent treating and you will become what you wish to be."

To make sense of how the July and August talks fit together, we will be offering some  short "Mini-Workshops."  This Sunday join Rev. Maurene for "Deciding." It will give you a chance to actually try out - and ask questions about - the ideas we have been talking about.  

Here's some more good news!  Rev. Dr. Ahmondra is going to start sharing "Midweek pick-me-up" videos on our CSL Carlsbad Facebook page starting this Wednesday. 

Hope to see you Sunday, and as always, feel free to bring a friend. Blessings to you...

Awaken With Gratitude:
By Practitioner Bené Raphael
Giving thanks is what brings abundance into our lives.  When we give, it is returned.  We then receive.  This is the Law of Attraction.  What we give out returns to us because the Universe always says "Yes."  Giving thanks for particular things throughout our day is a way of giving in particular.  Giving thanks for everything is awakening to the flow of all good.  When we remember to give thanks for the smallest of things, for "every thing," we are then living in gratitude. 

from the Science of Mind, by Ernest Holmes
(The basis of this Saturday's Online Meditation)

Command My Soul
     Spirit within me, command my Soul to do Thy bidding;
     Compel me to follow the course of Truth and Wisdom.
     Control my inward thoughts and my outward ways,
     And make me to understand Thy Laws.
     Command my Soul to turn to Thee for guidance and light;
     To turn to Thee for wisdom and knowledge.
     Let the paths of my Life be made straight and sure;
     Let the Journey of my Soul find its completion in Thee.
Command my Soul to do Thy bidding.

"I know what I want in my world.  I am now going to believe that I have it."    
Raymond Charles Barker
